  • Iris: With its hints of violets, wood and powdery notes the iris reveals a soft, majestic Basenote and gives the fragrance elegance. 


  • Pink pepper, elemi, benzoin and incense: The spicy-peppery notes of pink pepper and elemi give the top notes freshness. The balsamic notes of benzoin and the notes of incense give the composition warmth and mysterious sensuality.

my opinion


When sprayed a few seconds a spicy note was in the air, but it last’s only a few seconds. And leaves a very flowery fragrance. The perfume smells like a fresh bouquet of flowers. It’s not easy to describe a fragrance, but I think that sums it well. A slight sweetness accompanies the fragrance of flowers.




The fragrance smells gentle and unobtrusive, very comfortable and feminine. If you like floral fragrances you will like it for sure. It’s best to try by yourself. Do you like tart scents this scent is probably not your case since a certain lightness resonates of it.


The bottle is very beautiful, restrained and very elegant, it looks. The new fragrance by Yves Rocher Secrets D’Accord essence Chic is available since September 2016 at Yves Rocher.

    Got Yves-rocher from in December, it`s usually not something i`d buy but the price was just right so I thought why not.Unfortunately, I did not like the sweet flowery smell.
    Well written review, thanks for sharing
